Progress in Genomic Medicine: From Research to Clinical Application provides a careful synthesis of the foundations, current trends and translational challenges in genomic medicine, clarifying pathways forward and enabling genomic medicine research and implementation across clinical settings and treatment development. Sections address the history and growth of genetic medicine, with a discussion of key studies in syndrome delineations, inherited diseases, biochemical genetics, and chromosome abnormalities, overview clinical applications made possible through genomic advances, with chapters on DNA sequencing for clinical genetic diagnosis, genotype-phenotype correlations in individuals and across populations, new-born screening for treatable genetic disorders, and more.

In addition, social, ethical and public health aspects of applying genomic technologies are included throughout. Here, Dr. Smith applies her experience and participation in the field, across its major milestones, to put current research, clinical advances, and ongoing questions in context.
